TODAY’S MEDITATION – Humility comes before honour (Proverbs 15:33)

It is very interesting to sometimes see that the world uses biblical expressions just like believers. Now, one thing is certain: does the world really have the revelation hidden in the Word of God. Certainly not, for even Satan could not access the hidden truth about the crucifixion of Christ, though he knows how to quote the Bible… This is why God wants His children to have access to knowledge, these things hidden in His Word. My brother, my sister, you might already have heard that before honor comes humility and maybe you often say it. But have you ever tried to get into the mind of God through His Word to understand what that means? You see, pride and humility are often placed next to one another in the Word of God, like two inseparable enemies. However, believers tend to attribute pride to unbelievers or new converts because they believe they are still proud due to their separation or lack of relationship with God. Therefore, such a ‘judgment’ sometimes leads us to believe that we are better than them because we are Christians! WHAT A LIE! My friend, pride is nothing more than the refusal to grasp the grace of God. And the grace of God does not ask us to judge the others! The truth is that the proud lives in fear of rejection from men, so his whole life is made up of lies and excuses. And he cannot fight it, because that would belittle him in the sight of men. It is therefore only by the grace of God that the proud can get out of pride by accepting who he really is, in other words, by turning his back to his lies and his excuses. When the Bible says that “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6), it is simply because the proud refuses to approach Him as he is to be changed by Him, while the humble gets naked before the Lord, for ultimately a humble person is a proud person who humbled himself. It is also very important to remember that the phrase “humility comes before honour” should not only be used to mark a glorious social ascension, because in His mind, God says He wants us to prosper as our souls prosper. In other words, once we humble ourselves before God, He gives us access to His glory, that is His character, which gradually will allow us to become more like Christ every day. So, it has nothing to do with the honour or glory of this world. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name. [retweet] [facebook]
